Auto Trader has revealed the top 10 best Barbiecore cars available on the Auto Trader website today:

1. Chrysler Windsor 1952 – the year it all began


In 1952, the first-ever Barbie was introduced to the world - and the rest is history.

Today, a mint-condition Barbie from the 1950s can be worth thousands.

So, a special year deserves a special car - like this Chrysler Windsor advertised on Auto Trader by a private seller.

It’s bubble-gum pink, retro and American, and it’s been signed by Fast N’ Loud’s Richard Rawlings.

2. Austin Healey 1962 – Barbie’s first-ever car


Barbie got her first-ever car – an Austin Healey - in 1962. And believe it or not, the Healey is available to buy on Auto Trader for £59,995.

It was released in the same year and the same colour as Barbie’s first car, so your Barbie car collection can’t get more vintage than this.

3. Fiat 500 – limited-edition Barbie Fiat


To celebrate 50 years of Barbie, Fiat launched this super-stylish, limited-edition Fiat 500 in Barbie Pink, which is available to buy on Auto Trader.

It’s super cute and the perfect car to drive your Ken around in.

What’s more, you can buy the same car’s miniature from Mattel so that your Barbie can have the same car as you.

Priced originally at £11,700, it’s up for grabs on Auto Trader for just £5,490.

4. Chevrolet Corvette – same as Barbie’s C1 generation


When we think of Barbie and Ken driving around Malibu along the palm tree-lined streets, the Chevrolet Corvette comes to mind.

In the Barbie movie too, you can see Margot Robbie driving a Chevrolet C1 Corvette from the Barbie Land to the Real World.

So, if you’re after a Chevy Corvette yourself, we’ve found the perfect match - it's the same C1 generation as Barbie’s Corvette. This fiery Red Chevy available on Auto Trader is from 1961 and is a two-seater which makes it perfect for a date night with Ken.

5. Mercedes-Benz E Class – pink limo for a Barbie party


A private seller has put this pink Mercedes-Benz E-Class up for sale on Auto Trader and it’s the perfect party vehicle to get the Barbies together.

Yes, a six-door limousine may not be practical for your day-to-day journeys in Barbie Land, but life in plastic is fantastic.

So, grab the glittery streamers and the fluffy bedsheets and come on Barbie, let’s go party!

6. Volkswagen T2 Danbury – Pink Campervan


If you’re a fan of Barbie’s DreamCamper, you’ll love this pink Volkswagen T2 Danbury advertised by a private seller on Auto Trader.

Originally owned by Richard Hammond, this Campervan comes will all the Barbie essentials for a weekend getaway, including a fridge, cooker, purple leather seats, a sunroof, pop-top with bed boards and mattress, and an Alpine Stereo to blast the Barbie movie soundtrack from.

Now the only thing we need is a water slide connecting the campervan to a pool to make it a true Barbie-style campervan.

7. Horwin EK1 bike – a modern-day moped for Barbie


For all the Barbies that like to zip around town, we’ve found the cutest, pink moped for you. And, it’s electric! The Horwin EK1 is up for grabs on Auto Trader for just £2,999.

It comes with a mobile charging point so that Ken’s always one call away, ample storage for your Barbie accessories and LED lights to make you stand out as the ultimate Barbie in the pink wonderland.

Talk about a head-turner - we just Ken’t take our eyes off it.

9. Ferrari 328 GTS – Barbie’s first Ferrari
